The Canon EOS 350D (Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT in North America and the Canon EOS Kiss Digital N in Japan) is an 8.0-megapixel midrange digital single-lens reflex camera manufactured by Canon. The model was initially announced in February 2005. It uses Compact Flash storage and a Lithium ion battery. Part of the EOS, it is the successor to the EOS 300D and the predecessor to the EOS 400D (or Digital Rebel XTi), which was released in August 2006. Since early 2008, the 350D has been remaindered (production ceased in 2005).
The 350D is an upgraded version of the popular Canon EOS 300D, which was the first sub-US$1000 digital SLR, introduced in 2003. There are some differences between the 350D and the 300D . Many of the features 'locked out' by Canon in the 300D were unlocked in this camera, so it has been subject to less unofficial 'hacking' to release the locked features. In addition to these unlocked features, a number of other improvements have been made. Some of the most significant upgrades include:
8.0 megapixels (up from 6.3)
DiG!C II image processor
Faster power on times (0.2 seconds)
Compact Flash type II capability (includes microdrives)
14 (JPEG) or 4 (RAW) frames continuous shooting buffer
Smaller and lighter body
Increased function customization
E-TTL II flash algorithm (improvement over the old E-TTL flash algorithm)
Selectable AF and metering modes
USB 2.0 interface (improved from the slower USB 1.1 interface on the 300D)
The Canon EOS 350D comes with  Digital Photo Professional to be able to change RAW images to TIFF or JPEG. This was only available on Canon's professional cameras.
